It’s Fandom Friday over at Twilight Tuesday, and this week I am super excited about that! Why? Because not only are we once again focusing on my favorite Vampire book series (I wish I could see your look of shock!) the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. Have no fear… The Twilight Saga is a close second! But what makes this BDB challenge even better is that we are focusing on my favorite Brother…Rhage! He’s amazing. Totally. But, before I go on and on, let me have Beth tell you about this challenge:
I know I really shouldn't keep repeating myself, but it bears repeating... Thank Goodness It's FRIDAY! That means we are in for another edition of FANDOM Friday! This week is the second Black Dagger Brotherhood challenge, and we are focusing on the second book, Lover Eternal. If the first BDB Challenge didn't get you to read the books - this one might do the trick! One thing you will learn from the devoted fans of the brotherhood, is that these books ROCK!
Back to the challenge at hand... Lover Eternal focuses on Rhage. Rhage is the carefree, happy-go-lucky Brother. The Player. Rhage is beautiful and strong and loyal. And Rhage is cursed. This book is a fantastic joyride and there is a beautiful story that flows throughout. It is hard to not say too much!
Craft Portion: Create a project that captures Rhage, or the story of Rhage and MaryLuce - anything that you want! But be prepared to tell us about it!
Comment Portion: Tell us who Rhage is to you. Explain what and why you feel like you do... Rhage is special - why do you suppose that is?
There were SO many things I could use as inspiration here! First, I was thinking something with a Tootsie Roll Pop (he loves ‘em!), then, something with his nickname (Hollywood), but then I thought of The Beast. His Beast. I’d love to tell you more, but I don’t wanna give too much away if you haven’t already read the book (what are you waiting for?).
I colored the stamp with pastels and chalk. I wanted a soft look. I used teal on the outer edge to mimic his beautiful eyes.
This is what the original stamp looked like. This is actually the stamp I used for Phoenix’s Blessing favors. See the cool Phoenix? I did the same thing with that as I did on this project. Blocked out the other creature and added the name.
Nothing fancy on the inside, but I think that line says it all! Now what is it that I like about Rhage? Let me count the ways… He’s got the good guy/bad guy thing goin’ for him, he’s big (with boots he’s about 6’8”!), he’s quite the wise guy… I could list some other things, but I think I’ll let you form your own opinion about him. So go out and read this series!
